[Perspectives] Words that I wrote on your skin

Stillbirth can have a shattering effect on parental mental health and family dynamics. As highlighted in the recent Lancet Ending Preventable Stillbirths Series, how parents cope with stillbirth and how health-care personnel can help them in this painful process is a complex area that is seldom discussed. Theatre can be a way to shed light on difficult topics such as coping with stillbirth. Jack Thorne’s play The Solid Life of Sugar Water, at the National Theatre in London, takes the audience on a vivid exploration of how losing a child can change the fragile dynamics in a relationship.
